The LA Dodgers are already looking like good bets for the World Series this year, even with the entire season to play. The Dodgers were the runners up in the National League last season and this has seen them installed as bookies favorites for the World Series at 8/1. The Dodgers certainly represent a decent pick for those who haven’t placed a bet on this yet, but are they the only side with a realistic chance?

Well no, as the likes of the Red Sox (10/1), the Yankees (14/1) and the Cardinals (9/1) must also be considered in contention – at least if the odds at bookmakers’ sites are anything to go by. There is also the inherently unpredictable nature of MLB to consider, so could the Cubs a chance this season? Last season was a bit of a catastrophe for the team in the windy city, finishing bottom of the NL Central, thus not making it to the Post-Season match ups. But at 50/1, Cub’s fans might fear the same could happen this season. It could be worse, you could follow the Astros who have a 200/1 shot of World Series glory. We all know how sport can throw up an upset, so assuming the latter could win the crown. This is true to some extent of all types of gambling but the themed slots games like Avalon II or Hot Shot on offer at online casino sites perhaps present a greater chance of winning a payout from your gambles than standard sports betting does.

This is because they feature so many elements designed to enhance your chances of winning money – one of the reasons why so many casino fans love the slots. For example there is the presence of wild icons on the reels, such as the burning baseball one in the MLB themed game Hot Shot, which substitute for missing icons to improve the chances of scoring winning combinations. These games also offer multiple pay lines (Hot Shot has nine) and free spins features, all intended to stack the odds in your favor, so you should end up ahead financially if you play them, whether you win the top jackpot or not.
